BDS-holes invariably sell their agenda as being a "non-violent" attempt to persuade Israel to uphold "international law." While it is true that implementing boycotts is not a violent act, that does not mean that doing so is peaceful. There is an act in federal law that makes this point. The current issue of Foreign Affairs, has a group of essays about the role of nuclear weapons, one of which deals with the potential for nuclear conflict with China. One potential flashpoint in Taiwan, for which American policy is governed by the Taiwan Relations Act which states in part:
[The United States will] consider any effort to determine the future of Taiwan by other than peaceful means, including by boycotts or embargoes, a threat to the peace and security of the Western Pacific are and of grave concern to the United States.This does not provide anything about the validity, or lack thereof, of why "justice" requires boycotting Israel. However, it does firmly place boycotts in the category of "other than peaceful means" and "threat to peace and security."
